Description: No previous experience is needed, just an open mind and the ability to listen to criticism and strange opinions, which may clash with your own.
We run a facilitated square table discussion on a large array of philosophical subjects. Although often exploring the lives and work of particular philosophers and following a bit of a theme through the term, this is not a structured philosophy course. Participants hopefully learn something new every week.
Note that current affairs and politics are well covered in other KCLC offerings so are off our agenda.

Tutor: Brian Jones
Start Date: 4th August 2022
Duration: 16 weeks (Subject to Covid restrictions.)

1 review for Philosophy Circle – Semester 2

  1. Enrolment Officer

    We started the term (semester 1) with Sex and Sin. But only talking about them. Are they the same thing? What is the link between sex and love? Or is it more often an expression of power?

    We then spent time talking about Time. Does time actually exist or is it just a human construct and would it exist without humans to observe it? Is it subjective?

    We then came together to discuss Unity. Should we be united politically or socially? Is nationalism a good or bad concept? Will the United Nations ever work?

    Finally, we discussed the Vienna Circle. A group of philosophers who met in coffee shops in (you guessed it) Vienna and whose theories had a great influence, particularly in the 1920s and 1930s, but also up to the present day.
